Road closed, no proper diversion or traffic control in place.

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 16:18, Fri 6 December 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

A361 closed at High Street due to a wall falling onto the main road. Heavy traffic is using Plum Lane to try and rejoin A361 further down. Plum Lane is single lane and it cannot cope. Cars/trucks up verges and queues. THIS NEEDS URGENT ACTION. A proper diversion and one way system needs to be set up to deal with traffic through the village.

Council ref: ENQ19849590

  • Also, Plum Lane has a weight restriction so HGVs come to a dead end at road closed barrier with no pre warning whatsoever and it’s very challenging for them to reverse on a main road on a blind corner and manoeuvre out of the situation!!

  • The A 361 is still blocked. A traffic control system is urgently needed. Plum Lane cannot cope with the traffic taking alternative route. Plum Lane has a weight restriction. Large lorries could damage buildings on Plum Lane
